Marty Mulé, acclaimed chronicler of Louisiana sports, dies at 73

Marshall "Marty" Mulé, an award-winning journalist who wrote about Louisiana sports in newspapers, magazines and in books for four decades, died Saturday (March 12) at Lakeview Regional Medical Center in Covington after suffering a heart attack at his Covington home. He was 73.



Mr. Mulé, a Times-Picayune reporter from 1974 until his retirement in 2005, received the Distinguished Service in Journalism Award from the Louisiana Sports Writers Association, its highest honor for Louisiana journalists.

"No Louisiana sports writer ever took more delight in his craft than Marty, and that didn't change when he retired" from the newspaper, said Doug Ireland, the chairman of the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame.

Louisiana Sports Writers Association members choose Hall of Fame inductees and journalism award recipients.

Calling Mr. Mulé's work with the Hall of Fame "profound," Ireland said. "I'm trying to come to terms with not ever again answering the phone and hearing him say, 'How you doin', bud?' and then launching into a convincing pitch for inducting some overlooked giant in sports history."

Mr. Mulé, who kept writing after leaving The Times-Picayune, was named Louisiana Sports Writer of the Year three times by the National Sportswriters and Broadcasters Association.
